World’s Best Apple Crumble


This is a big claim… to have the world’s best apple crumble and be on a diet… well, this is the 20/20 diet for you! Such simple recipe, yet so awesome!

I was inspired to use macadamias from Jules, an ace cook (and the mum of one of my old boyfriends). It tastes especially amazing with a scoop of coconut ice cream, but that’s pretty hard to make from scratch, so I often buy it from a health food store. SERVES 6

Preheat oven to 180°C.

6 large granny smith apples, peeled, cored and diced into 2 cm pieces
1 lemon, juice only
1 vanilla pod, seeds scraped
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 2 cups almond meal
1⁄2 cup flaxseed meal
1 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons coconut sugar
1⁄4 cup extra-virgin coconut oil, melted 1⁄4 cup chopped, macadamia nuts
1⁄4 cup flaked, almonds

Place the apples in a pie dish with lemon juice, vanilla seeds and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Mix until apples are evenly coated.

In a bowl combine almond meal, flaxseed meal, nutmeg, remaining cinnamon and coconut sugar. Stir in coconut oil and mix well until mixture resembles sand.

Cover apples with topping mixture and place in oven. Bake for 40 minutes or until apples are tender and topping is golden. Sprinkle over chopped macadamias and almonds. Serve with a scoop of organic coconut ice cream from a health food store, or some biodynamic whole-milk yoghurt.

Enjoy! X
